    or this one that I did as my intro to paper piecing and was so easy & fun! For the eyes I just cut circle a bit bigger than the eyes with pattern and sewed on and let them 'rag' a tad. http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/quilt...ed-block/11890

    Check out Anka's Treasures. She has 2 books for large print fabrics. "Livin' Large" and "Livin' Large II" All fun with visual interest.

    I've made many of her quilts, and the instructions are always easy to follow.

    I made Tula Pink's "Stacks". I used all my ugliest, brightest, biggest print, stuff that I wanted to be rid of. Nothing matched, and that was the beauty of it. With all that white background, it turned out beautifully. Your stack would be beautiful, too.

    Your prints are all about the same scale. You may want to collect a few smaller scale, or stripes, nearly-solids and zig-zags for a little more variety and less sameness.

    I have saved two 5" squares of everything I have sewn for our now 45 yo daughter and wanted to put together a quilt using just those prints and maybe using a tone on tone teddy bear print for a background; the Falling Charms pattern from MSQC sounds like a good pattern for this also. Who would have known that so many years later these 5" squares would be called "charms" or be put into "Nickel quilts"???!!! Will be anxious to see your quilt when you decide what to do .

    I think the snap bags or make up bags would be great with these prints. Or how about the roly nesters at studio kat designs.

    If you're looking to make a quilt, someone else just posted a ginormous quilt - actually, a huge log cabin quilt. Here's the link:

    Your fabrics are very 'Kaffe Fassett' looking. Please show us what you come up with!

    I think you could make a great Hidden Wells using those fabrics!

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    When I see fabrics like that, I immediately think "bags", but there are many things you could do--placemats, table toppers, pillows, mug rugs, fabric bowls. And funky chickens, as Diane said. Have fun!

    Beautiful fabrics. I love scrappy and you could add a navy blue or black and make a lovely quilt.
